With a free Google email account, Google Drive provides a simple solution for collecting and storing students’ work that they create on the iPad. With one account, you can organize files into either student or project folders. Google Drive is also a a good option for storing media files online where QR codes can be linked.
How It Works?
- Step 1: To use Google Drive the app must be connected to your Google account. When you first open the app, it will prompt you to sign in or sign up.
- Step 2: On the Google Drive home screen you can view the drive categories on the left side of the screen and all the files listed on the right side. Tap the grey arrow icon for the file information and to preview that file.
- Step 3: Tap on the plus icon in the top right corner of the app to add a folder or to upload a file from your device.
- Step 4: All uploaded files are automatically set to private access. If want to share these files online or through a QR code, you will need to login to your Google account through a web browser. Then navigate to the drive tab.
- Step 5: Once you have selected the files you would like to share, a preview will load and you can click on the share button in the bottom left corner of the screen. On the share panel you can change the private access to the “Anyone with a link”. The panel also provides you a link you can share or use to create a QR code.
